National Black HIV AIDS Awareness Day Event
January 29, 2018
Get tested, know your status. Gift card to the first 20 people tested for HIV at Affinity Health Center on February 7, 2018 during our regular testing hours between 8:30 am to 6:00 pm. This year’s event marks the 18th year for National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD), a national HIV testing and treatment community mobilization initiative targeted at Blacks in the United States and the Diaspora. NBHAAD was founded in 1999 as a national response to the growing HIV and AIDS epidemic in African American communities.
The NBHAAD initiative leverages a national platform to educate, bring awareness, and mobilize the African American community. NBHAAD has four key focus areas which encourage people to:
Get Educated about HIV and AIDS;
Get Involved in community prevention efforts;
Get Tested to know their status; and
Get Treated to receive the continuum of care needed to live with HIV/AIDS
Join us on February 7th. Get tested, learn more about HIV, and share what you learned using #SOLVEHIV #NBHAAD18 on social media.
